THE INTERNET (JULY 2016)

After enrapturing audiences on their debut sold out Australian tour, seductive R&B neo-soul outfit The Internet have announced they will return to Australia to play Splendour In The Grass, today adding headline dates to the visit; Melbourne’s 170 Russell on 26, 27 & 31 July and Sydney’s Metro Theatre on 29 & 30 July.

The LA-based collective, an offshoot of Odd Future, blends smooth soul and funk, with chugging drums and slinking bass lines overlaid by front-woman Syd the Kyd’s honeyed vocals. Although they began as a duo, live, The Internet is a six-piece outfit that weaves “complicated drum, bass and guitar solos into honeyed vocal landscapes” – Music Feeds. “(The headline Sydney show) really was something special – Syd poured her saccharine voice into the bundled maze of vibrating instruments. They managed to do all this whilst shooting blasts of magnetic soul-energy into the unsuspecting audience”.

Ego Death, The Internet’s third album, was released in July last year to widespread acclaim, garnering a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The band’s most evolved album to date, ‘Ego Death’ features guest appearances from the likes of Janelle Monae, Vic Mensa and Tyler, the Creator.

Special guests are DRELLER (all shows) and LUEN (Sydney only).
